Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Children like the naughty monkey and are satisfied with the happy ending; the watercolor illustrations of the zoo and animals are also charming. George is left alone again -- this time in a zoo. George being George, he cannot help but get into trouble, but the curious little rascal ends up saving the balloon -- and the day.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
